Description

Dialog with Dr. Polina Gedova & Dr. Michael Press

 

Lucy McKenzie, born in Glasgow in 1977, uses the materials of painting, design, installation and writing in her work. She takes objects and motifs from the history of architecture and design, from literature, music and film, as well as from fashion, politics and sport, and alters these source materials using the techniques of 19th-century decorative painting, creating surprising new constellations. How does the artist change our view of the tradition and history of painting? And how do these historical styles relate to our present? Museum Brandhorst is showing the first comprehensive retrospective in Germany.

The dark side of Pop Art

The Pop Art artists, especially Andy Warhol, glorified the icons of pop culture and were the first to show consumer goods and the products of the mass media in art. Yet their works also addressed the downside of capitalism and consumer culture, such as the obsession with superficialities. This tour shows how Pop Art could become, at one and the same time, a phenomenon of both mass culture and subc

After Work: Let's talk about Art – vor der Kunst und an der Bar

Artworks attract us in many different ways. They agitate us or give us pause for thought, and sometimes their humor makes us laugh. Some artworks have such a strong effect that we can remember our encounter with them many years later. Each month, a different person chooses a work from our collection and shares with us not only art historical facts and background knowledge, but also their personal
